Several mainstream media personalities ripped President Trump's speech to the United Nations, including MSNBC's Chris Matthews and ABC's Terry Moran.
Moran, the network's chief foreign correspondent, said that Trump's threat to obliterate North Korea if the Kim regime attacks the United States amounts to a "war crime."
"The words 'totally destroying' a nation of 25 million people, that borders on the threat of committing a war crime," Moran told George Stephanopoulos.
Stephanopoulos, a former spokesman for Bill Clinton, said Trump possibly "opened up a justification for preventative war against North Korea."
Off-air, Moran tweeted a more mixed review of Trump's speech.
Former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly on Tuesday again declared his innocence on multiple charges of sexual harassment and called his exit from the network “a political and financial hit job.”
In an interview with Matt Lauer on NBC’s “Today,” O’Reilly denied the various accusations of sexual harassment that led to his ouster last April. “Every allegation in this era is a conviction,” he said, adding that he was one of many to be named in sexual harassment lawsuits at Fox News.
Advertisers dropped out of O’Reilly’s program after reports went public in April that the network and its star had paid more than $13 million to settle five sexual harassment lawsuits against O’Reilly. The network’s top-rated prime-time host was subsequently pushed out in April.
O’Reilly told Lauer that his firing “was a hit job, a political and financial hit job.”
“There were billions of dollars at stake in business deals,” O’Reilly said, and the network “made a business decision that they could prosper without me.”
“They had a contractual clause that they could pay me a certain amount of money and not put me on the air and they exercised that clause,” O’Reilly explained.
“I can go to sleep at night very well knowing that I never mistreated anyone on my watch in 42 years,” O’Reilly said, insisting to Lauer he did “absolutely nothing wrong.”
Democrat Dan Helmer, a candidate for Virginia’s 10th congressional district, released a campaign ad Monday entitled “Helmer Zone” that is being ripped across the board by journalists as one of the “worst ever” political ads.
The ad became popular throughout Twitter after Mic reporter Emily Singer flagged it as potentially being “the worst” she’s ever seen.
It features candidate Helmer, wearing a shirt with “veteran” on it, and spotting current 10th District Rep. Barbara Comstock (R., Va.) at a bar. The scene is inspired by the classic 1986 Top Gun bar scene and is chock full of Goose/Maverick references, from The Righteous Brothers’s “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling” to “danger zone.”
“Bet you can’t get her to hold a town hall,” a woman tells Helmer.
“Town hall? I’ll do you one better than that. We’ve lost that loving feeling,” Helmer replies. “No, Dan,” the woman pleads.
Helmer then sings, karaoke style, about Comstock’s lack of town hall meetings, and her opposition to Obamacare and Planned Parenthood, all complete with intentionally bad singing.
At least 80 people have been arrested during protests that were encouraged by the Democrats on their social media accounts.
On the 17th the St. Louis young Democrats twitter page and Facebook page posted numerous images and text posts encouraging black lives matter and those who support the movement to rise up and fight back against police and anyone who doesn't believe what they believe.
Well, black lives matter terrorists took it upon themselves to do exactly that!
This is yet more proof that the Democrats are not only controlling the black lives matter terrorist group along with Antifa, but they are actually encouraging them to commit these acts of violence and terrorism throughout the United States in hopes they can take over the country just like the fascists Nazis they stole their tactics from.
Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN), who is also the DNC Deputy Chair, speaking at Beyond DACA on September 18, 2017. The event took place at the Minneapolis Community and Technical College.
As acts of political violence in America increase in regularity, a new poll shows that many college students have no problem with it.
Of those surveyed, a startling 19 percent claimed to support the use of violence to silence speakers they find offensive, the same perspective held by the increasingly violent Antifa groups around the country.
Wanting to see what college students in Washington, D.C. thought of Antifa, Campus Reform took to the campus of American University to ask students their opinion of the violent leftist organization recently labeled a domestic terror organization by the Department of Homeland Security.
Immediately, the students made it clear that they had no problem with the controversial group.
“I like them...beating up fascists is good,” said one supporter, while another claimed they were simply trying to “educate” their political adversaries, and violence was many times “a very powerful tool.”
Three Democratic congressmen were arrested outside Trump Tower after protesting the president’s immigration policies in New York City on Tuesday.
Arizona Rep. Raúl Grijalva, Illinois Rep. Luis Gutiérrez and New York Rep. Adriano Espaillat were taken into custody by police, according to Grijalva’s campaign Twitter account and a Gutiérrez aide.
Grijalva’s account tweeted that “Raúl was taken into custody in front of Trump Tower for civil disobedience along with Rep. Gutierrez and Rep. Espaillat.”
Douglas Rivlin, Gutiérrez’s communications director, confirmed that the congressman was arrested.
Photos taken at the scene and posted on social media show the Democrats, all of whom are Latino, sitting in the street.
The lawmakers were part of a group protesting the president’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program that shields young illegal immigrants who entered the country as children from deportation.
The coach said he spoke to them about that and other situations that have happened in our country. He then explained why former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick started kneeling during the anthem.
“One of the kids asked, ‘Can we do that?’ I said, ‘As long as we know why we're doing it, I don’t have a problem with any of it.’”
When the anthem started, the Cahokia third graders immediately took a knee where they were standing. Their backs were away from the flag—but not on purpose—according to Gooden.
“What I teach my kids is love, integrity, honesty, fairness, respect and boundaries,” he said.
Democratic New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen suggested Tuesday morning that Russia is to blame for the illegal immigrant protesters who derailed House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s community event on Monday.
Video from the protest shows the crowd of pro-amnesty activists surrounding Pelosi and shouting her down, while accusing her of being insufficiently pro-immigrant.
When asked why the activists were targeting Pelosi, who has been working with President Trump to try to strike a deal on DACA, Shaheen struggled to give an answer.
“Why, of all people, is [Pelosi] getting the backlash from DREAMers?” asked CNN host Alisyn Camerota.
“DREAMers and young people across the country are frustrated, and they want to go to college and join the military and get jobs and be Americans, which is what they are. This is the only country most of them have ever known,” Shaheen answered, largely dodging the question as to why the activists have turned their anger on Democrats.
The alt left terrorist group, Antifa, has been defending Muslim migrants for years now. Yet recently the terrorist group has adopted many of the same terrorist tactics that you can see Muslim brotherhood offshoots using around the world.
Spain is no different! Watch the terrorist group Block roadways in an attempt to keep anti-Muslim protesters from getting too close to a Muslim mosque that just opened.
The terrorist group was seen hurling bricks, stones, assaulting police officers, smashing car windows, until a separate unit of police officer showed up and kept the calm between the rival factions.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) told Chuck Todd Sunday he will not be filing as a member of the Democratic Party when seeking re-election to his Senate seat in 2018.
Todd told Sanders on NBC "Meet the Press" he is in some ways the "most influential member" of the Democratic Party without technically being a member of it. Sanders is currently leading the charge for "Medicare For All" that has rumored 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls jumping onboard.
The filing deadline to register as a Democrat comes three months before having to declare as an Independent in Vermont. The senator was asked what party he plans to register with during his run for reelection 2018.
Sanders said he believed "the current model of the Democratic Party obviously is not working," saying he will do as he has done in the past and keep his independent status while seeking reelection.
"Well, I will do what I have done in the past. Let me just say something about this. The current model of the Democratic Party obviously is not working," he said.
The Republican Party gained a majority in the House and Senate during President Barack Obama's eight years in office, and they also have a strong majority of governorships.
"What we need to do is to reach out to independents. There's is a heck of a lot more independents in this country than there are Republicans or Democrats," Sanders said. "I am an Independent. I have worked within the Democratic caucus in the House and the Senate for over 25 years. I’ll continue to do that. "
"So you'll become a part of the Democratic Party when you think it's finally open enough for independents. Is that a litmus test?" Todd asked.
Sanders said the Democratic Party does not reach out enough, and the party's agenda needs to be even more progressive.
"It's not a question of a litmus test. I think that the Democratic Party has got to reach out to working people, reach out to young people, has got to come up with a progressive agenda," he said, reeling off a laundry list of such items.
After a third night of violence and unrest in St. Louis, about 100 protesters marched in silence along downtown streets Monday during the morning rush hour. Once they reached City Hall, the silence gave way to chants for justice.
The city has been marked by protests since Friday, when former police officer Jason Stockley was acquitted on charges of murdering a black motorist after a police chase in 2011. Stockley is white.
Overnight Sunday, police arrested more than 80 people after a peaceful protest turned violent as night fell. In a concentrated area downtown, some protesters smashed windows and overturned trash cans, while others threw chemicals and rocks at police, authorities said.
“After the demonstration, organizers announced that the daytime protest was over,” Mayor Lyda Krewson said in news conference at about 1 a.m. Monday. “But a group of agitators stayed behind, apparently intent on breaking windows and destroying property.”
She declined to take reporters’ questions.
Some protesters complained that police were unnecessarily aggressive. Further inflaming tensions, a St. Louis photographer reported he and others heard police chant “whose streets, our streets” after making some arrests.
A New York professor who tweeted that teaching “future dead cops” is a “privilege” – provoking outrage from the city’s police leaders – was placed on administrative leave on Saturday by his employer.
Michael Isaacson, an adjunct professor at CUNY’s John Jay College of Criminal Justice and self-proclaimed anti-fascist activist, was disciplined because of the three-week-old tweet that caught fire after Isaacson’s Thursday appearance on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” His Aug. 23 tweet said:
Some of y'all might think it sucks being an anti-fascist teaching at John Jay College but I think it's a privilege to teach future dead cops
“Michael Issacson harbors total disdain for the active and future police officers that he teaches at John Jay College,” Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, said in a Friday press release.
John Jay College President Karol V. Mason called Isaacson’s comments “abhorrent” and the “antithesis” of an academic institution that trains future law enforcement in a statement. Although she said that professors have a right to free speech and academic freedom, “expressions of hate or intimidation are not welcome in that civil discourse.”
A vocal group of undocumented youths and their supporters drowned out House Minority Nancy Pelosi Monday at a news conference where she was calling for the immediate passage of the DREAM Act.
The event began calmly with a smiling Pelosi at the podium surrounded by Congresswoman Barbara Lee and Congressman Jared Huffman, community leaders and other Dreamers.
“Our nation’s dreamers are an inspiration to all of us,” she said. “With their courage and their patriotism. They embody the promise of America… of the American Dream… Make America dream again,” Pelosi said to applause from the partisan crowd.
Students walk out of Webster Groves High School in demonstration after Stockley ruling, calling for curriculum change.
Administrators tell me students will suffer consequences of missing a class as per school/class policy, and acknowledge students' constitutional right to peaceful protest. They found out about this a few days ago and asked police to come out to keep students safe.
Campus police killed Scout Schultz, 21, who they said was advancing on officers with a knife. Schultz refused to put down the knife and kept moving toward officers late Saturday, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said in a statement.
“Officers provided multiple verbal commands and attempted to speak with (Schultz) who was not cooperative and would not comply with the officers’ commands,” the agency said in a statement. Schultz “continued to advance on the officers with the knife.”
Investigators have determined that Schultz was the one who called Georgia Tech police to report a suspicious person on campus, GBI spokeswoman Nelly Miles said in an emailed statement Monday.
Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was wiretapped by U.S. government investigators both before and after the 2016 presidential election, according to a report out Monday night.
The wiretapping was authorized by a secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court after the FBI started to investigate Manafort, 68, in 2014, CNN reported. He's been under scrutiny over his financial dealings and lobbying efforts with pro-Russia and Ukrainian officials but has denied colluding with Russia to influence the election.
The order to monitor Manafort was discontinued in 2016, but investigators obtained another FISA warrant that stretched into early 2017, according to the report.
Once again we see exactly how Libtard's act in public when they see somebody they disagree with politically.
Watch this clearly insane American woman walk up to a group of people sitting at a table, and start berating them simply because one of the people dares to wear a "Make America Great Again" hat IN DENMARK!
Yet another example of liberal tolerance, and just how completely bat shit crazy these people are!
You can even sit down at a bar and have a beer these days without one of those deranged mentally unstable Libtard's assaulting you.
Two photos shared by different people show a man in Seattle riding the RapidRide D Line wearing a Nazi armband. A later photo shows the man knocked out on a sidewalk from a punch.
It is believed that the photos may be this man in this video, which was shared shortly after the above photos. The video was shared by Sam McCready, who has no other videos associated with the account.
In the video, the man wearing the swastika is talking about welfare to another man with a blurred out face before he is cold-cocked. A voice off-camera says, “Night night.”
About 1,000 protesters surrounded the home of St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson in the Central West End late Friday, breaking at least two windows and throwing red paint at the brick house before some 200 police in riot gear moved in to break it up.
There was no indication on the scene that Krewson was in the home at the time.
A total of nine police officers had been reported injured as of 9 p.m., including one officer with a dislocated shoulder and an officer with a possible broken jaw, Acting Police Chief Lawrence O'Toole said shortly after midnight Saturday, appearing with Krewson in a video. A Highway Patrol trooper was also reported injured.
What happens when Hillary Clinton supporters spotted a 14-year-old Trump supporter holding a sign outside of a Cosco supporting his president?
Well, like the heartless individuals that they are, they do is they normally do and began berating the kid with every name they can!
Listen as they call him a racist, bigot, white supremacist, and a slew of other names they've been brainwashed into calling anyone who disagrees with them.
Yet another example that these people are just pathetic and have hearts full of hatred.
Buddhists are known as possibly the most peaceful people on the planet due to their religion prohibiting them from engaging in acts of violence towards anybody or anything, including things a small as bugs.
The same cannot be said for those who adhere to the Islamic religion.
Listen as these children explain exactly what happened when the Muslims arrived in what was formally known as Burma to launch a vicious attacks on anyone who did not subscribe to their religion of hatred.
So for those who were crying about the Muslims fleeing the war-torn nation, don't! The Muslims were attempting to take over yet another Eastern Asian country and received the backlash from both the people and the government forces.
A New York Times reporter took issue with Hillary Clinton's continual assertion that the media was too hard on her during the 2016 election, saying that it wasn't the media's job to get her elected.
CNN's Brian Stelter took a look at Clinton's recent book tour and her repeated complaints about the media on Sunday's "Reliable Sources."
"I don't think the press did their job in this election," Clinton said in an interview with Vox.
Amy Chozick covered Clinton for the New York Times during the campaign and said that the media needed to do some soul searching, but it wasn't their job to elect her.
"The way she presents it in the book is a little bit like it was our job to get Hillary Clinton elected," Chozick said. "Now, our job is to inform voters about their choices and how those choices would impact their lives."
Clinton complains in the book that her private email server scandal was covered unfairly by the press, and she particularly blasts the handling of the probe by then-FBI Director James Comey.
During the election and afterward, President Donald Trump has gone after the media too, often criticizing them through social media and calling unfavorable coverage "fake news."
The pro-Donald Trump "Mother of All Rallies" allowed Black Lives Matter protesters to take the stage and speak Saturday in Washington, D.C.
Black Lives Matters members arrived at the rally and a brief exchange ensued with some members of the M.O.A.R. crowd. The group can be heard chanting "Black Lives Matter" on video.
The Trump rally organizer who was speaking invited the group to come on stage and stand silently. Another Trump rally organizer eventually took the stage and announced that Black Lives Matter would be given an opportunity to speak.
"Whether they disagree or agree with your message is irrelevant. It’s the fact you have the right to have a message, just like all of them have the right to their message," he said.
The President of Black Lives Matters New York then addressed the mostly pro-Trump crowd. The Trump rally speaker who subsequently took the stage commented on Black Lives Matters' speech.
"I'm a black man. If black lives really mattered," he said, "then they need to protest in Chicago. Let's take it to Chicago. Let's bring everybody. We need to have a M.O.A.R. rally in Chicago with BLM."
According to the Mother of All Rallies website, the rally was held to "demand protection for traditional American culture" and support "the United States and the America First agenda."
Keynote speakers included California Congressional candidate Omar Navarro, author Hamody Jasim, and the founder of Latinos for Trump, Marco Gutierrez. The band Madison Rising was the featured performer.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) dodged on how he would pay for his single-payer health care system during an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” on Sunday.
NBC’s Chuck Todd played a clip of Sanders’ once saying that a single-payer health care system would bankrupt the nation. The clip was first discovered by NTK Network.
“Okay. Very good question, Chuck. But here is my hope. You and I are going to discuss this within five minutes. I would hope very much that NBC and CBS and ABC allow us some serious discussion time to explain to people in our country why we a spending so much more than other countries, “Sanders responded in an attempt to dodge the question.
Sanders then laid out a few options that would supposedly save roughly $600 billion. The problem is that Sanders’ single-payer health care system would cost Americans an estimated $2.5 trillion per year.
“When it comes to ‘No White Guilt,’ I agree with that,” said Diante Johnson, a supporter of President Donald Trump, to CNN’s Ryan Nobles on Saturday.
Nobles sought to frame Saturday’s “Mother of All Rallies” event — a political rally supporting Trump — in Washington, D.C. as somehow hostile to “people of diverse perspectives.”
Partial transcript below:
NOBLES: There are clearly a lot of prominent African-American leaders that feel differently than you do about the president. What do they have wrong about their perception of Donald Trump?
JOHNSON: They don’t have the research. They haven’t done the research. The thing about it is, if you do the research, if you actually, President Trump, I read the book, “The Art of the Deal.” If you read it, you would know exactly how he operates and why he does what he does. He’s playing 3-D chess.
NOBLES: I’ve seen some shirts here today, one shirt that said “No White Guilt,” things like that. There have been some messages that might not be that open to folks with diverse perspectives. What would your message be to folks like that?
JOHNSON: When it comes to "No White Guilt," I agree with that. I actually just made a post about it on my page and a video about it, is that there is — there are some white Americans that feel guilty for what their ancestors did, this and that, and the thing about it is they shouldn’t have to feel guilty. This is America.
Watch as a group of radical feminists spot a man filming their small but outrageous protest in a park in the UK.
The man is then swarmed and robbed of his own phone that he was using in order to film the idiotic protest, and then has his phone smashed on the ground by one of the left-wing idiots.
Police refuse to help the man later on file charges against the feminist, claiming he was th inciting them by recording their public display of stupidity.
You would not know this by watching the mainstream media but Mark Zuckerberg has come under a little scrutiny lately after it was revealed Facebook was accepting advertisements on Facebook during the 2016 campaign which were purchased by the Russians.
CNN actually decided to cover this story this morning, however Dana Bash tried to link the Facebook scandal to Jared Kushner during an interview with Dianne Feinstein. She was having none of it:
Not only did Dianne Feinstein say there was no evidence for Jared Kushner helping the Russians place ads on Facebook she also said, and I paraphrase, everybody has to be careful of what they say because nobody wants to be wrong.
I think she is referring to both the politicians and the media: in a way she was calling out people like Dana Bash for speculating on an issue without any proof, as she obviously did here, in an attempt to push a narrative.
As everyone prepares for Sunday night's Emmy Awards on CBS, the celebrities walked the red carpet. As they walk into the venue, it's their chance to show off a fabulous new look or make waves with a wild soundbite.
And as the festivities were just kicking off, “Insecure's” Issa Rae delivered on the latter, in spades.
When asked who she was rooting for regarding the awards, Rae dropped an absolute stunner:
“I'm rooting for everybody black!”
Comedians Kroll and and John Mulaney (Saturday Night Live) will voice the central characters of Nick and Andrew, respectively, in the edgy surreal comedy, whose voice cast also includes Maya Rudolph (Maya & Marty), Jason Mantzoukas (The League), Jordan Peele (Key and Peele), Fred Armisen (Portlandia), Jenny Slate (Girls) and Jessi Klein (Inside Amy Schumer).
“There are few things that keep me up at night….Nick Kroll’s adventures in puberty is one of them, so we greenlit this series with very few questions asked,” said Cindy Holland, Netflix VP of original content.
Kroll and Goldberg co-created Big Mouth with screenwriter-directors Mark Levin & Jennifer Flackett (Little Manhattan). All four executive produce the Netflix production.
“Andrew and I have been best friends since 1st grade, so this show is over 30 years in the making. I can’t wait to tell all the stories that make up the glorious nightmare of puberty,” said Kroll.
Among the duo’s real-life stories — a lip-sync performance of Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now” at Camp Wildwood in 1992 which they call legendary and infamous to this day.
Kroll is the creator and star of Comedy Central’s Kroll Show. He also co-starred on FX’s The League alongside recurring player Mantzoukas. Kroll will next be seen on the big screen in Jeff Nichols’ feature, Loving, which premiered at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, New Line’s The House, as well as three animated films, Seth Rogen’s Sausage Party, Illumination’s Sing and Dreamworks’ Captain Underpants. Kroll recently completed his nationally sold out tour and an off-Broadway run of Oh, Hello, which he co-created, co-wrote and co-starred in alongside Mulaney.
Writer-producer Goldberg has animated series experience — he began his career at Fox’s animated comedy Family Guy where he rose to co-executive producer. His feature script, The Wedding for CBS Films, appeared on the 2011 Black List.
While protests staged during Saturday afternoon and early evening were peaceful, reports began emerging later in the evening that some demonstrators were engaging in violent behavior.
Hundreds of protesters marched Saturday night through the Delmar Loop of the St. Louis suburb of University City. After three hours, organizers asked protesters to disband and reconvene Sunday afternoon.
Protest participants were united in their reason for demonstrating: To use Smith's death as a catalyst to raise awareness of the tenuous relationship between law enforcement and communities of color.
"I don't think racism is going to change in America until people get uncomfortable," protest organizer Kayla Reed of the St. Louis Action Council told The Associated Press.
Susanna Prins, a white woman who carried a sign that read "White silence is violence," chimed in, "Not saying or doing anything makes you complicit in the brutalization of our friends and neighbors."
Earlier in the evening, more than a thousand peaceful protesters carrying "Black Lives Matter" signs and "No Justice, No Profits" briefly blocked a major intersection before dispersing.
"The message is simple: stop killing us," Cori Bush, a social worker and activist who helped lead marchers early Saturday evening, told The St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "Black folks say, stop killing us."
But after a majority of the protesters left, a small group remained. They vandalized businesses and threw rocks, water bottles and garbage can lids at police officers, The Associated Press reported. A chair was thrown through the window of a Starbucks, and one protester was also spotted hitting a police SUV with a hammer, according to the Post-Dispatch.
A white former police officer was acquitted Friday in the 2011 death of a black man who was fatally shot following a high-speed chase, and hundreds of demonstrators streamed into the streets of downtown St. Louis and later an upscale neighborhood to protest the verdict that had stirred fears of civil unrest for weeks.
Ahead of the acquittal, activists had threatened civil disobedience if Jason Stockley were not convicted, including possible efforts to shut down highways. Barricades went up last month around police headquarters, the courthouse where the trial was held and other potential protest sites. Protesters were marching within hours of the decision.
More than a dozen arrests were made, and several officers were hurt as the day went on.
